Underwired bra with teal fishnet net cups (double layered in the bottom of cup) and black velvet trim at band, around the cups, and front half of straps. Small velvet bow at the gore. High apex cups connect to straps in a triangle at the shoulder. Straps are half-adjustable and feel nicely firm due to the velvet. Deep U-shaped back with three hook and eyes. Plush black channeling continues the design on the inside of the bra.
Gives a soft, natural, encapsulated lift, not for those who prefer globes! As usual for Claudette this bra is definitely on the narrow side, but not as narrow as the ... Polish brands. All materials are very soft and comfortable. This band is a smidge firmer than Claudette Dessous Mesh Underwire Bra (CD2000), but I would still recommend sizing down. So far I have found both Sophias - Claudette Sophia Icon Padded Bra (101001), Claudette Sophia Minx Sweetheart Demi Bra (101025), and the Claudette Cool Cotton Underwire Bra (CD8008) to be sufficiently firm for my regular band size.
I will be actively looking for more bras in a similar cut to this one, because I greatly prefer it to the silhouette currently in fashion - sort of the fuller busted equivalent to the more unstructured trend going in the indie/designer scene right now. I've seen some promising previews and am keeping my eye out for new colors of this one.
